At YAS Showground near Harrogate
The Imagineering northern team provided some special STEM activities in the Discovery Zone at the Great Yorkshire Show.
This was the second time that the team had been to this event and they were pleased to help celebrate the 160th Anniversary of the Great Yorkshire Show, organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society. Today it is one of the largest shows of its kind and this year it welcomed over 135,000 visitors through its gates. The weather remained fine all week - and the Princess Royal made a visit too.
In the Discovery Zone Imagineering laid on maths and magnetic challenges as usual. The Hydraulic Arm was the central feature of a farmyard scenario. Youngsters made some highly imaginative farmyard vehicles and machinery with K’Nex. Imagineering tutor, Philip Purkiss, made a model of a grain dryer - demonstrating what can be made quite simply. There were many enquiries about Imagineering Clubs and projects, and the 1330 visitors to the stand over the three days included youngsters, parents and teachers as well as Yorkshire Agricultural Society dignitaries.
This event was the last of a series of summer events that Imagineering has taken part in have included a local Big Bang at Harris Academy in Rugby and the Kenilworth Agricultural Show.
